Hello, lovely ladies & gents! As you might be aware, I read a lot, I write sometimes, and I am very opinionated. Probably much like you, yourself. So, I thought it might be fun to read the same thing and write about our various opinions, etc., here on my blog. Next week, I plan to begin reading The Rush by Rachel Higginson.
I thought maybe I could post some thoughts about the first chapter on Friday, October 16, and anyone else who decides to read this book at this time, has already read this book, etc., could discuss their similar and dissimilar thoughts in the comments – speaking of which, I would love to hear if this concept interests you at all in the comments to this post.
One of the primary reasons that The Rush is a nice first pick is that the e-book version is currently free through Barnes & Noble and Amazon Kindle. Another reason is that the description interests me:
A life not her own—A future already decided.
Every facet of Ivy Pierce’s life is meticulously planned out and plotted. Cynical and jaded by sixteen, Ivy’s only hope is to escape the legacy she was born into.
She has a plan, a carefully thought out, feasible plan. She just has to play by the rules until everything falls into place. Unfortunately as predictable as her life can be, she never sees Ryder Sutton coming. He tumbles into her life unimpressed and untouched by her and the life she lives. He’s an enigma to her. A gorgeous, frustrating, sincere mystery and a complete phenomenon in the ugly world she lives in.
What blooms between them is a fiercely intense attraction that cannot be ignored. Even though they would both be better off without each other—Even if both their lives depend on staying apart.
The book also has above a 4 star rating on Goodreads, which generally bodes well.
If you are also interested by this story, and would like to read and discuss with me, please download the story, and look for my post on Friday! Also, feel free to share this post with others who might be interested, on your blog, via e-mail, Twitter, wherever. The more people who partaicipate, the more fun the experience will be!
I hope to see your comments next weekend, and also hope you are thoroughly enjoying this weekend.
